Infrastructure funding to support Western Parkland City

The Western Sydney City Deal’s Liveability Program has opened for a second round of funding applications.

The investments will allow new community infrastructure to be built to support the growth of the city.

The announcement sees the remaining $25 million of a total $170 million funding pool to open for applications from Blue Mountains, Fairfield, Liverpool, and Wollondilly Councils.

It will fund local projects that promote healthy active lifestyles and support the arts, culture and creativity.

Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the funding would continue making Western Sydney an ever more attractive place to live.

“Great cities aren’t built in a day – they have to be nurtured and supported in a partnership between the community, business and government, which is the very model of the Western Sydney City Deal,” Mr. Tudge said.

Projects already funded in the first round include improvements to sports fields, a new swimming lagoon, showground improvements, local park upgrades, town centre remodelling, better access to community facilities for people with disabilities and a skate park.

“This investment is delivering on a key plank of the City Deal, which is a joint agreement between the three tiers of government that sets the investment foundation for the Parkland City to become a fully realised 21st century city,” Mr. Tudge said.

Applications are open now and close on Friday 30th August 2019.
